On T2W and FLAIR images hyperintense foci are noted in both centrum semiovale and both corona radiata. CSF signal intensity fociwith surrounding hyperintensity are noted on FLAIR images in left corona radiata and genu of the left internal capsule, suggesting old cavitated infarcts. Periventricular and suraventricular hyperintensities are noted on T2W and FLAIR images. Mild cerebral cortical atrophy is noted as evidenced by slightly enlarged cortical sulci and increased CSF spaces over both cerebral hemispheres. Both lateral and 3rd ventricles are grossly dilated. Midline structures are not shifted. The rest of the image findings are unremarkable. Retention cyst is noted in the left maxilary sinus, suggesting sinusitis. Focal T1 intermediate and T2 hyperintensity area is noted in the left mastoid region, suggesting mastoiditis.
